In order to relieve the tremendous political, social, and economic pressure caused by population explosion, the birth control campaign in China was implemented in 1972. The book records what a 19-years-old girl exactly experienced as a birth control taskforce member in years of 1975 - 1976. Focusing on a grassroots level birth control taskforce, this book introduces the political, social, and economic background back then in China, tells in detail how the team members carried out their mandatory duties, and vividly narrates stories of villagers during the campaign. Displaying the unprocessed, painful struggles among values, morals, ethics, and emotions of the taskforce members, the grassroots leaders, and the victims and their families as well, this book presents the reader with humble but genuine first-handed material to look into such a serious issue that had drawn international attention.
